My office has been doing life drawing sessions every two weeks for all the artists in the studio. I’m not an artist but there’s a spare slot and my friend organising it knows I like to draw so has encouraged me to get involved.It’s not stuff I’m super confident with and thus should practice more - proportions, dynamic poses, quite naturalistic style and all in relatively short slots of time per pose. Can’t say I’m incredibly happy with it, but it’s been interesting.Always known my artistic abilities are relatively limited but bounce between sticking to my strengths (defined style, fairly bland/flat in terms of poses) and wanting to try and practice at my weaknesses/expand my horizons.…I never make much progress beyond getting all introspective about my artistic abilities 8D

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRYSk12SZvwI posted the flat inked version a while ago, now here is the pencil shaded version of my collab with frayed-symphony! It’s our Persona 3 tribute to Shinji and Castor. I did a lot of it to the linked tune off the soundtrack!
She’s working on what is already looking to be a much more impressive coloured version and I can’t wait!

This picture makes me so happy. It’s awesome, Michelle :) x

Flat inks on a Persona fanart collab with frayed-symphony which I’ve been horribly slow to ink. Work in Progress - just excited about our collab and wanted to post progress! She did the figure on the left, I did the one on the right and inked both. I’ll pencil shade, she’ll colour. TWO MORE FINISHED VERSIONS COMING SOON, PROBABLY. (…This most likely makes no sense other than to the 2 of you who know Persona 3.)

Days 1-7 of twitch tv plays pokemon, also available as a tshirt!!

Some people have expressed interest in getting the old version as a print, but it was a nasty drawing so i decided to redraw the thing! If you would like a print please e-mail me at lfrick55@gmail.com. The prints are also up on society6 but I can print them myself a lot cheaper? My print quality is something I can attest to.

15$ for 10x18 including shipping

I can print the old drawing as well but…. i mean, if you want i guess…

Twitch Plays Pokémon and the narrative those following have created around it has become so ridiculously entertaining. It’s almost like all the weirdness of the internet was a warmup for this exact moment. HISTORY HERE, PEOPLE xD

I literally could not stop laughing at AATTVVV the Venomoth becoming known as the All Terrain Venomoth. I now want to draw some sort of tribute to this insane phenomenon - in the mean time, this one is pretty damned brilliant.

…I will probably be getting this shirt when payday rolls around.

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze is out tomorrow and it got me all nostalgic for the old SNES classics. Loved Donkey Kong Country 2, wanted to do a speed scribble biro tribute.
That game in retrospect is one of /THE/ games of my childhood. Loved playing as Dixie Kong, so I’m happy to see her back in a new game.
Also the DKC2 soundtrack continues to make me happy and get stuck in my head.

Been Inking more of frayed-symphony's doodled lineart as practice for a proper collaborative Persona fanart sketch we're working on. It's coming along nicely, so hopefully have variations of that to post soon.
This is largely characters from her charming kids book, 256 Postcards Ago. You should check it out and probably buy it. Her work is awesome!

First A3 sketch in aaaages. Messily scanned in A4, but (mostly) pieced back together without issue.I am such a huge fan of Metroid. The series holds a really special place in my heart. It’s a combination of the lonely ambience and atmosphere, the unique visuals that provide more questions than answers and the part soothing, part unsettling, entirely haunting soundtracks.The nature of the Chozo who adopted Samus is always ever changing and mysterious from game to game. I’ve never much cared for the Zelda timeline stuff, but the way each Metroid game adds to the mythos, changes designs but still doesn’t provide much in the way of answers fuels my imagination. Wanted to do my take on their design which sits somewhere between Super Metroid and Metroid Prime.Was listening to this brilliant OCremix [ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x21k14XcHow ] scribbled out a Chozo reaching out to child Samus on a whim one night. Added to it and made a take on the series origin story. A Ridley led Space Pirate attack on a lab akin to the opening of Super Metroid, two survivors. A Chozo scientist and a recently orphaned Samus.I could ramble about Metroid games for days, but I’ll spare all two of you who are reading this!
